Are afraid to add figures to your landscapes? Do they become stiff additions to your nice loose watercolors? In Fun with Figures, Tony van Hasselt teaches a more relaxed, fun approach.
Tony starts with just an "incident", or simply a blob of paint and then lets it suggest a figure rather than having a pre-conceived idea of what a figure should be doing. Tony shows you how to draw the standing and seated figure, simply by using familiar alphabet shapes. Next he introduces a 4-step method to paint the figure and add head, arms and props. The fun continues when color is introduced and exercises are added to really loosen you up and see the realm of possibilities. Learn to look for hints of figures you didn't even know you painted, how to sponge out to add light figures and just where to place them. Try it today! You'll giggle, throw paint and have fun!
Tony van Hasselt, AWS is a popular watercolor instructor who loves to share his joy of on-location painting and studio work. Tony has written many articles on painting, co-authored two how-to books and produced several instructional videos. Since artists are visually oriented, he created "The Building Blocks of Painting", a visual reminder system based on the experience of generations of masters. This system is taught at all van Hasselt workshops.
